MixObeats/ MixORemixes: A Mix Of 80 Assorted Beats Produced & Mixed By Koushik
Stones Throw's production/deejay extraordinaire Koushik follows up his double CD BRIGHT MOMENTS with MIXOBEATS, another double header - this time showcasing some of his choice, original beats and remixes. Created as an extremely listenable mixed sampling of beats selected from five different projects (including 3 forthcoming albums, neverheard/unreleased tracks, remix instrumentals, library music beattapes beattapes, and sounds from very limited edition 45 projects), MIXOBEATS is more of a composed soundtrack of Koushik's production career (to date) than your average beat CD. Clocking in at nearly eighty beats in just over an hour, Koushik seamlessly mixes the gamut of straight/classic hip-hop, electronic excursions, funk/rock beats and his trademark psychedelic mellowness. MIXOBEATS also comes with a second, bonus CD, MIXOREMIXES - a 50 minute/nearly 20 track selection of many of Koushik's personal favorite remix projects ranging from 2001 through 2008 (including work with Percee P, J-Rocc, Fourtet, Dooley-O, Beastie Boys and other vocalists dating from the late 80s to the present). The MIXOREMIXES sound, much like its creator, is a diverse one that launches from Koushik's foundation of classic hip-hop and enjoyably diverts into his electro funk and drum-heavy folk sounds.
